Facial and Acne Scars

Acne prone skin can be frustrating and sometimes down right embarrassing. Did you know that acne is the most common skin condition in the United States. To make matters worse, the scarring that can occur as a result of acne can leave a permanent reminder of the battle for clear skin and are almost impossible to fully cover up with makeup or DIY solutions. The first step to repairing skin is to get the acne under control with the help of a dermatologist if needed. Then, we can help erase some of the signs of scarring.

Scars don't always have to be permanent with our many treatment options.

There are many options when it comes to scar revision and our team of experts can help you decide which option is best for your situation. Some of these include:

Dermabrasion

This procedure can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and scars on the face, including those from acne. Using a rapidly rotating device, the outer layer of skin is resurfaced in a simple office-based procedure.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a great option for those suffering from acne scarring especially those with fair skin. The type of peel you need will be determined by the extent of your scars and recovery time is based off which strength of peel you require.

Excision or Punch Grafting

In excision or punch grafting procedures, the scar is removed from the skin and stitches or a skin graft are used to repair the wound. Patients who struggle with 'ice pick' acne scarring are great candidates for these procedures.

Dermal Fillers

 Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra and other can be used to treat acne scars by injecting them right into the scar. This temporarily plumps and smooths the skin where the scar exists. It's relatively inexpensive compared to other treatment options and is minimally invasive. 

Laser Treatment

As the name implies, this treatment option uses wand-like lasers to remove the outer layers of skin and heat the other layers to stimulate collagen production.
